“To be ready for college, workforce

training, and life in a technological

society, students need the ability to

conduct original research in order to answer questions or solve problems, and

to analyze and create a high volume and extensive range

of print and non-print texts in media forms

old and new.”

"Students who are college and career ready employ technology thoughtfully to enhance their reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language use. They are familiar with the strengths and limitations of various technological tools and mediums and can select and use those best suited to their communication goals.”
